Fiona Hunt-Armstrong

Currently living in Hervey bay, I am now looking to crew at weekends if possible and can travel down. If I can get the chance to get out on the water would be great. If anyone needs an extra crew regularly or even if just from time to time that would be terrific. I am also fit and agile to move around the boat at speed if needed. I have also used a trapeze.
Please contact me if there are any crews needed.
Happy to share my round of the drinks after!!!

Crewing Experience:

Hello I am regular crew on a Young 88 (29ft) in Christchurch, New Zealand. I am here in Brisbane for work until just after Easter and I would love to get out sailing whilst I am here. I have been crewing mainly as a trimmer in Chch for around 10 years with a few offshore trips but mainly club racing. I have also done a little on bigger boats but mainly cruising rather than racing but I was brought up dinghy sailing.

Nathan Goldstone

I am really interested in getting as much time on the water as possible. I haven't done much sailing before, but what I lack in experience I can make up for in a passion for being on the water. I am really keen to learn the ropes and help out wherever I can. I am currently an elite level rower competing at a national level and looking for something to do outside of my time training. I am also competing in a rowing race across the Atlantic Ocean in a year or two, so I would love to get some time at sea. I am not concerned about doing the hard jobs on board, and work really well as part of a team in a competitive racing environment. With my fitness and balance on the water, I think I can make a good contribution to a crew.
